  title to the page on lullabies  
         
 

A lullaby is a song mothers and nurses sing to babies and small children to make them sleep faster. A lullaby is a rhyming song intended to calm children and induce a good-night sleep. Lullabys are common all around the world, but each country has its own lullabies.

Some English known lullabies are “Tell me a story”, “All the pretty horses”, “Sleep, baby, sleep”, and “Blow the wind, blow” (a Scottish lullaby).

 

Do you still remember the lullaby your mother used to sing to you? You too may sing your favourite lullaby to your dolls.

Your four-legged friend.

Tell me a story
Tell me a story,
Tell me a story,
Tell me a story,
Remember what you said,
You promised me,
Your said you would,
You gotta give in so I'll be good,
Tell me a story and then I'll go to bed.

All the pretty horses
Hush-a-bye don't you cry,
Go to sleep-y, little baby.
When you wake you shall have
All the pretty little horses.
Blacks and bays, dapple grays,
Coach and six white horses.
Hush-a-bye don't you cry,
Go to sleep-y, little baby.

 

Sleep, baby, sleep
Sleep, baby, sleep,
Your father tends the sheep.
Your mother shakes the dreamland tree,
And from it fall sweet dreams for thee.
Sleep, baby, sleep,
Sleep, baby, sleep.

Our cottage vale is deep,
The little lamb is on the green,
With snowy fleece so soft and clean.
Sleep, baby, sleep,
Sleep, baby, sleep.

Twinkle, twinkle, little star
Twinkle, twinkle, little star,
How I wonder what you are.
Up above the world so high,
Like a diamond in the sky.
Twinkle, twinkle, little star,
How I wonder what you are.

 
 

Go to sleep
Go to sleep, my darling, close your little eyes.
Angels are above us, peeping through the skies.
God is in his heaven, and he watches doth keep.
Time for little children to go to sleep.
